Abstract

Summary

  • 1.  The influence of bacterial associates on the size of human intestinal amebae in culture is shown.
  • 2.  The use of size-distribution curves to distinguish amebae in controlled environments is described.
  • 3.  Evidence of a genetic size difference between and is presented.
  • 4.  It is suggested that, until an accurate, practical method for separation is devised, a mean size of 10µ for cysts and 12µ for trophozoites (a criterion often suggested in the past), be used as the dividing line between the larger species, and the smaller, .
